Last year we decided to practice the four gift rule: something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read. Being heavily pregnant with my son and having siblings so close together, I didn't want the girls (or my house) to be overwhelmed with toys.
Here are a few ideas from my girls something they want list over the years.
Le Toy Van Ambulance Set
Introduce your child to the wonderful world of doctor games with this Green Toys Ambulance & Doctor’s Kit play set. It’s great for encouraging development of motor skills, imagination, and pro-social behavior. The ambulance features roof lights that flip up into a briefcase handle. Made from 100% recycled plastic, the play set is an environment-conscious choice for your child.

I couldn't resist making the fifth item something educational. Those books are huge favourites of mine. The series now has books on inspirational men too.
Wishing you a wonderfully Merry Christmas from eco rascals.
